Kiwi Van Gogh

High on New Zealand’s Canterbury cliffs overlooking the river, a “blue head” trout stationed itself in a feeding lane off a current break formed by an ochre, mid-current boulder. Blue head is a term used by kiwi anglers to identify seasoned brown trout that adopt a blueish-green cast as they reach maturity. This particular blue head was hunted for two days, offered a few dozen patterns, but refused to bite, enjoying instead the vivid palette of the New Zealand currents.
